Aliso Creek Beach in Laguna Beach

Aliso Creek Beach 1

Aliso Creek Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Laguna next to Main Beach. It is also one of the last beaches in Orange County where families can still have a nighttime bonfire. Why is it so popular? Parking is a breeze, they have a snack bar and a fun playground.

Aliso Creek Beach is located at 31131 S Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. There is a large parking lot (fee based) and overflow parking in a lot across the street. There is also a lot of free street parking, but it is on a busy part of PCH with a lot of blind spots, so I don’t recommend it.

The beach has beautiful white sand, and lots of places for your family to spend a summer day. If your family is coming to use one of the fire pits, then I recommend coming early to reserve one (before 5am). Families will set-up tables, chairs and spend the whole day at the beach before ending the day with a bonfire.

The beach has the nicest bathrooms around located right next to the snack bar (opens on weekends only). There are also showers and drinking fountains located next to the lifeguard tower.

The beach is a “steep beach” meaning that there is a big drop-off causing the waves to cut short, so you have to keep a close eye on the little ones when playing in the water.
Overall, Aliso Creek Beach is a fun beach to visit with your family, but it is not as intimate as some of the other beaches we have listed guides to on the blog.
